All week I couldn’t quite figure out what I wanted to say about Whitney Houston in this post. Part of me what still shocked that she had passed, and part of me kept flashing back to me singing her songs when I was a little girl into the mic and camcorder my dad set up for me. Mostly, I felt like I couldn’t say anything that hasn’t already been said. I will say that for me, all of the incredible things that Whitney achieved in her career with such remarkable ease, made it seem even more possible for a little brown girl to dream big and chase after those dreams. And for that I will always be grateful. Thank you Whitney, we will always love you!
